A lunch break is all you need to start and finish your Valentine’s Day shopping. We present a handy guide to get you started.
Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, and you might be one of those with barely any time on their hands to shop for new things. But take heart – if you have a smartphone, you just need a few minutes out of your lunch break to complete your Valentine’s Day shopping.
Here’s what you can do:
* Open your favourite shopping site/app.
Start by opening your favourite online shopping site or app on your smartphone. The leading fashion sites and apps have a lot of Valentine’s Day shopping offers, discounts, cashback deals and reward points up for grabs. Look for the Valentine’s Day shopping sales without browsing elsewhere – this is where the action is, and you don’t have time to gallivant all over the rest of the site right now!
* Browse through the categories you are most interested in.
Before you get right down to Valentine’s Day shopping, you will have to make a mental checklist of all that you need to really buy. If you don’t have a clear idea of what you’re looking for, you will end up browsing endlessly and getting steadily more and more confused. Instead, prepare a mental image of what you’re looking to wear on V-Day: what kind of clothing and footwear, and then start shopping. Once you know what you’re looking for, you can zone in on those specific categories instead of going all over the place looking for good bargains.
* Be sure to check the size guides.
When buying clothing, be sure to check the site’s size guide. A leading shopping app or site will have a universal size guide across the site.
This means that the size guide shown on the site will be applicable to nearly all the brands that are featured during the Valentine’s Day shopping period, and beyond. But if you are not sure, you should certainly refer to the size guide provided with every product. Proceed to buy it only when you are sure of the size you have selected. In case your bust and waist size don’t match exactly as per the size guide, go with the waist size.
* Review your shopping bag one last time.
Now that you have finished selecting and sorting your purchases, it is time to take a look at what you have bought. Open your shopping bag (stored online as you set aside each item) and review your purchases. Have you selected the right size of tee? Have you forgotten to purchase lingerie or perfume? Would you like that pair of shoes in another colour? Review your shopping bag and go back if you would like to add more items or remove some from the bag.
* Pay and finish.
You are now fully done shopping – everything you required from Valentine’s Day shopping is done! You can now proceed to checkout and payment. You can pay using your site’s e-wallet or your cards. You can even choose to redeem any promo codes or reward points at this stage to get further discounts. Once you pay, the site sends you a confirmation email about your purchases, and an ETA on the purchases.
There – all it took to get the best Valentine’s Day shopping offers and deals was a lunch break and your smartphone. In a few days, your purchases will reach your residential address, and you can tog up in your new things!
